Now you don't have to get a knife out to spread butter on toast, just use the butter pen!

Step 1: Stuff you need

Picture of stuff you need
One used up container of Tom's Deodorant.

1 stick of butter.

Step 2: Clean the deodorant container really good

I chose the Tom's deodorant because it seems the closest to being food. This is the tricky part, you need to disassemble the deodorant container which isn't too hard, then clean it really really good. I used a toothbrush and cleaned each part two times and then stuck the parts in the dishwasher for a third wash.

Step 3: Assemble

put the butter in the micro for about 60 seconds till it becomes liquid.

reassemble the deodorant container and place it on a plate.

pour the melted butter in carefully.

The first time I poured the butter in, I think I left the butter out to stand a bit so it wasn't super hot when I poured it in. Anyway, I had some sort of beginner's luck when I did it the first time and it didn't leak much. The second try it leaked out immediately, as some other people mentioned in the comments. I had a d'oh moment and realized that the leaking problem can be solved by putting the cap on and filling the container up through the bottom. Then snap in the center piece after it is filled.

place the plate in the frig overnight.

In the morning, clean the outside of the pen and the dial at the bottom.

attach a label to the outside.

Step 4: Use it on toast!

Put some toast in and then use the butter pen while the toast is still hot. It works!!

It gives new meaning to the term 'drawn butter'

Step 5: Hooray for the butter pen!!

hehe, thx!
Great Idea!! I like it! But a un-serious warning. Double check your deodrant before using in the am, especially at my house! My teenage son would switch the 2 around, just for kicks & giggles! So you would grease up your pits, and keep your toast from sweating! But they both would come in handy latter on, to keep the smell down from the boys body after I'd kill'em, and the butter to slick'em up to stuff him into a smaller container! LOL

This'll make my obsession with garlic bread a little less wasteful.

Instead of melting the butter you could also just cut it in chunks, put the chunks into the container pushed as far down as possible. Leave out for a couple of hours to soften. Then with the lid on use the wheel to roll up and 'shape' the butter. This way the butter stays the same as it original consistency. Great idea and instructable! Thanks!

ah, clever! i used to just grab the stick of butter, peel back the wrapper on one end and spread it on toast that way... this is much more efficient.
